Baldock Town Twinning Association presents a Murder Mystery
‘May Day Murder’
This year’s play has been written by one of our own members of Baldock Town Twinning.
In recognition of the centenary of the end of the Great War, this play is a tribute to those who had to rebuild life in Hertfordshire after the war.
Set in a North Herts town in 1919…….could it be Baldock? The trauma of rebuilding their lives presents numerous problems resulting in a murder within the family of the local gentry.
As usual Dinner will be served during the interval, but please bring along your own nibbles for the evening.
The ticket price covers your entry fee, a hot supper plus, of course, dessert, a reasonably priced bar (no BYO, please) as well as the Murder Mystery entertainment and a raffle.
Come and join us for an evening of nourishment and entertainment written by one of our own.
Messy Church is about having fun with all the family! Join us for a delicious lunch of chicken pasta bake (vegetarian option available) followed by trifle.
